And I pointed out that you conveniently left out a lot that hurt your position, and that you left out so much that including them actually destroyed your position. Not only that, your "facts" were many times not. Consider this one:

Nonsense. Take for instance the average price of cars: It's roughly the same as a percentage of what the average job in the country pays, maybe a bit less in Norway, actually. In Norway, it's about roughly 3/4 of what the average job in the country pays - roughly 60 thousand dollars compared to roughly 80 thousand dollars. In the US, it's about 4/5 of what the average job pays - roughly 30 thousand dollars compared to roughly 37.5 thousand dollars.

No. I do not see what you mean. There are many reasons why people are where they are or in the jobs they have or whatever - family, friends, climate, geography, congestion, etc. Money is the not the only thing. Get real.
